Shannon and I took our pack back to the The Dirty Dog 15K Trail Run in Kanawha State Forest, Charleston, West Virginia.
We ran this back in 2013 [report here], and it was immediately our favorite race.
This year I wore my visor-cam to capture the joy of dogs racing off leash through the forest.

This year, all five of us managed to stick to together and run as pack. We were not used to the very rough gravel roads, so we had to walk those sections. Also, it was hot and humid, so we took frequent water breaks.
But we had an absolute blast running the single track with other humans and canines, and this remains our favorite race.
Big thanks to the Todd family and the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners for putting on this uniquely fantastic event.
